A BLOODY MARY CHRISTMAS - Space 55 - November 24 - December 30, 2017
For the eighth consecutive year, Space 55 presents a holiday musical for people who hate the holidays and musicals, "A Bloody Mary Christmas".
Space 55 will open it's new venue, a 49 seat theatre located at 1524 N. 18th Ave. in Phoenix with "A Bloody Mary Christmas" written by Denny Guge, Jacque Arend, Shawna Franks and Stacey Reed.
This is the 8th straight year this show has run, proving to be a holiday favorite, despite it's rather raunchy take on the season. This material would be considered R-rated.
Sun City retirees Blanche, Bertha and Mabel sing, dance and drink themselves silly as they battle a heartless homeowner's association that tries to evict them from their condo on Christmas Eve.
"Due to high demand for tickets, we wanted to expand our performance schedule without asking our actors to sacrifice their own holidays," says Artistic Director Duane Daniels. "The 2 cast solution will work great and be a really interesting experiment."
BERTHA - Lidia Lei Koelbel & Riva Figueroa
MABEL - Julie Silverstein & RC Contreras
BLANCHE - Anne Sanford & Sasha Wordlaw
MR. VANDERHOFF - Duane Daniels & Doug Waldo
